I've been a patient of Dr. Kaplan's for about 20 years. Never wanted to change. He is a top notch urologist. He's guided me through very successful treatments for kidney stones, twice, and enlarged prostate. I'll stick with him as long as he practices.

Dr. Kaplan was one of the most unfeeling, arrogant and unhelpful doctors I've ever been to. He performed a painful procedure on me and when I screamed in pain he ran out of the room and did not return. Stay away from him and from his impersonal and uncaring staff.
